Description

"The Encyclopedia of Propaganda" examines all aspects of propaganda through history, and is organized in an A to Z format. The set defines the arenas in which propaganda is used such as politics, war, advertising and media; pinpoints the political systems in which it is used, such as Nazism, Communism and McCarthyism; and describes notable progenitors of propaganda and their works, including Hitler and "Mein Kampf", Machiavelli and "The Prince", Sun Tzu and "The Art of War", and Plato and "The Republic". "The Encyclopedia of Propaganda" also examines noteworthy individuals who have employed propaganda to further their own agenda, including Walt Disney, Fidel Castro, Jane Fonda, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, Saddam Hussein, Rush Limbaugh and Eleanor Roosevelt. Organizations which have utilized propaganda in a systematic fashion are also included, among them the Black Panther Party, the Sandinista National Liberation Front, and the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals. This well organized, easy-to-use reference should be a valuable research tool for students of world history, politics and literature.
